Super Lawyers Recognizes Five Attorneys at Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers
Super Lawyers has been recognizing outstanding lawyers across the nation for decades. We are delighted to announce five attorneys from Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers will appear on the 2020 list, replicating the firm’s success in 2019.
The rating service again named founding partners John Cooper and Jim Hurley as Virginia Super Lawyers. Attorney Bill O’Mara, who joined the firm in 2014, and became a partner in 2017, is again named as a Rising Star in the Super Lawyers Magazine along with John Baker. Attorney Griff O’Hanlon, who was named as a partner at the beginning of 2020, was included on the Rising Star list for the second year.
It is always an honor to appear on the Virginia Super Lawyers list. Less than 5 percent of lawyers make the cut in Virginia and under 2.5 percent of young lawyers are named as “Rising Stars.”
How Super Lawyers Picks Its Award Recipients
Thomson Reuters publishes Super Lawyers Magazine. It features the list and profiles of the selected attorneys and is distributed to lawyers and many law school libraries across the state. Super Lawyers is also published as a special section in leading city and regional magazines across the country. Lawyers are selected to a Super Lawyers list in all 50 states and Washington D.C.
Super Lawyers names acclaimed attorneys following a rigorous selection process. It combines peer nominations and evaluations with independent research. Each candidate evaluation is based on “12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.”
Selections are made every year on a state-by-state basis. Super Lawyers aims to create a comprehensive, credible, and diverse list of outstanding legal professionals that serves as a resource for attorneys and individuals searching for legal resources. Only lawyers who can be hired by the public are listed in the designation.
The Super Lawyers designation is one of the most widely respected accolades in the legal field. It is based on a thorough evaluation of the lawyers’ credentials by a blue-ribbon panel of lawyers across the Commonwealth of Virginia. The attorneys recognized the candidates’ expertise and achievement in personal injury law.
